Dr Shane Ingrey, Dunghutti/Dharawal man from the La Perouse Aboriginal community in Sydney, has a PhD in microbiology. He research focuses on the medical potential of native plants, continuing the knowledge of his grandmother.

“She’d say, ‘go and put this plant on it, this plant will suck all the stuff out for you.’ So we would always go out and do what she said, and that would be [the end of] that.”
